Last month, Samsung launched its much-hyped Galaxy S20 FE, a toned-down version of the original Galaxy S20 smartphone that launched early this year. The company also confirmed that it’d bring the device to India as well, though we didn’t hear about the pricing in the country, until now.
According to a report published by 91mobiles, the S20 FE will start at Rs. 49,999(~$681), which is very similar to the pricing of the OnePlus 8 Pro. The smartphone comes in five different color options — Cloud White, Cloud Navy, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Red, and Cloud Mint. If you’re based in India, you’ll be able to buy the Galaxy S20 FE from online and offline retail stores starting October 16.
It’s important to note that the S20 FE that Samsung is launching in India doesn’t have support for 5G connectivity and is powered by an Exynos 990 SoC. You can see the technical specifications of the Galaxy S20 FE below.
